It’s Time to Stop Trying to Be the Perfect Mom
You long to be the mom your kids need, but often you’re convinced you come up short. The label “not enough” seems to be stamped across everything you do—and yet parenting is the one thing you want most to get right.
What if the solution is simply to embrace the truth that you are not enough—but God is?
In Gospel-Centered Mom Brooke McGlothlin reveals how our entire approach to motherhood shifts when we stop chasing our vision of a perfect family and start full-out pursuing God. With refreshing candor, Brooke examines the daunting task of raising children in the light of God’s Word and challenges you to:
· embrace your moment-by-moment need for Jesus
· release the stress of believing everything is your responsibility
· learn to fight for rather than against your child
· believe that the story God is writing with your life is worth the sacrifice
· practice the daily disciplines that lead to Gospel-centered parenting
As you learn to anchor your life in the Gospel, you’ll find increased freedom, purpose, and joy in motherhood. And you’ll discover that Jesus is more than capable of meeting every need, for your children and for you.
Have you ever had a book that literally felt like it was handed to you by God himself? (Besides the Bible) Ok, maybe I am being a bit on the dramatic side right now but seriously, Gospel Centered Mom could not have come at a better time.
If you are looking for a how- to type parenting book, this is not the book for you. Gospel Centered Mom soul purpose is to get you (yeah you the mom) right back into the Gospel.
This book felt like I was sitting down with one of my girl friends. Not just any girl friends, but the one(s) that you can just pour your soul out to. The ones that wont judge you when you wonder how many more days until your kids can move out.
McGlothlin tells you right up front that you are not good enough and THAT IS THE POINT!
There were so many good things I could relate to in this book. I want to buy a copy for all my mom friends! So if you are a mom… GO!! Read this book.
